I don’t know how people feel about these. There’s a love hate relationship with things that are see through, it’s as if you want the whole world to see what you are carrying around but yet, it’s awesome cause you have nothing to hide.

This clutch was an unexpected find. I ventured into a shop I usually didn’t, saw this clutch, turn to Dawn and declared that I want it. Then I picked it up and declared to the sales person that I wanted it.

It isn’t a huge clutch, it can’t even fit my wallet. If you’re just heading out for a nice dinner and you just want to have something to put your phone, lipbalm, keys and credit card into, this would be perfect and eye-catching.

What do you think about see-through items? Love or hate? (on a related note, I just love the Acrylic clutch from Maison Martin Margiela)

    They’re out of stocks at the place I got it originally. Apparently you can get them at ASOS.

    Oh my goodness, that is so gorgeous!
    You need huge confidence to carry that kind of clutch, IMO. Salute! :)

    I usually don’t like clear bags because I don’t like revealing the contents to everyone. From the photo this one doesn’t look too transparent and it’s a hard case? Looks way easier to pull off than most clear bags. :)

    Thanks Joyce!
    Yeah i know there’s always the dilemma of letting people know what potentially embarrassing stuff i carry around like tampons and shit. :/

    I don’t think the shop I bough it at carries it anymore. I found it on ASOS though.

    Seems like the exact same one.

  5. Personally, I feel like they’re usually so much nicer when they’re empty (which is also obviously rather pointless and silly). However, once you put stuff in them, it often looks messy to me. I also prefer not showing the contents of my bag to the whole world either so I guess they’re a nay in my closet.

    You do have a point but well I guess it’s easy to take a “what’s in your bag” shot without much trouble. LOL

  6. Kinda cool! But it would make me a little nervous…I don’t know…

    Arissa replied on

    yeah like robbers can see exactly what you have inside there.

    I remember seeing those when they first came out and I can’t say I like them very much. They remind me of grade school lunchboxes except clear haha. I dunno, it would be interesting to see a coordinate with this xD

    I would’ve preferred it if it was bigger but I guess I could settle.

    Omg yes we were!! I was just telling Arissa I hoped we don’t bump into anyone that day, because I was dressed so shabbily

    Thank you for reading the blog <3 <3!

    omg whereeeeeeeee?? I remember it was hot and I was being a pissy bitch. Also, we just can’t seem to find this store I frequent. It’s as though they’ve disappeared into thin air!!!

    Haha.. that’s definitely good for someone like me who always dig forever into the bag just to look for the house keys or phone.

    Arissa replied on

    LOL it isn’t a huge bag, everything inside just rattles around though.

    It’s an interesting concept and original. I applaud you for a bold move in retrieving this clutch; I’m a bit self conscious to when it comes to my bag as well. I would probably try to put a lace fitting over it just to obscure the view a bit.

    I personally love the look of them! Not sure where to get my hands on one, living in Australia and all. Might not be wise to use it at ‘that time of the month’ – haha.
